Širok Sokak Street in Bitola

Širok Sokak Street in Bitola

Bitola, one of Macedonia’s largest towns, was known as the “City of Consuls,” because in the Ottoman era, twelve countries kept consulates here. Perched on a 2,000-foot plateau at the foot of Baba Mountain, Bitola is best-known for the nearby ruins of Heraclea. Its long pedestrian Širok Sokak Street overflows with shops, cafés and neo-classical buildings.
